Jonathan Schor

CEO & Co-Founder


We believe that the old fashioned ways of learning should be challenged and new learning resources are the bright future of education systems worldwide. When we design our products we focus on engagement and user experience in order to achieve a fun and effective learning process. We foster deep understanding of technology and pedagogy and the result is a product that teachers can use without fear and kids enjoy tremendously.

Since we started to code as 4th graders in the 1990’s, we knew how powerful code literacy can be for a child’s future. CodeMonkey was founded in 2014, based on Jonathan’s successful experiences in teaching young children to code through playful activities. Today, at CodeMonkey, we are bringing fun, knowledge and opportunity into the lives of millions of learners around the world.
